Two killed in Highway 17 crash

Highway 17 was closed in both directions just east of Chalk River after a double fatal crash this morning.

Ontario Provincial Police say it was just before 8:30 a.m. when a westbound car collided with an eastbound transport truck.

Two people in the car were killed. Three other passengers were taken to hospital; one of them is in serious condition. The driver of the transport was not hurt.

The highway has since reopened.
